Australia: USLAX / USLGB Container Excess Dwell Port Fee

Dear Valued Customer,


The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, in coordination with the Biden-Harris Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force and U.S. Department of Transportation, have opted to levy a “Container Excess Dwell Fee” for containers dwelling in port facilities for long periods of time.


The implementation of this Container Excess Dwell Fee initiative was effective on Monday, 1 November 2021. Although the program is set to go into effect on 1 November 2021, invoicing of these fees will not commence until 15 November 2021.


The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will evaluate progress in clearing out terminal facilities through 15 November. If there is not sufficient headway made in moving out long-dwelling containers, the directors of both ports may, in their sole discretion, make the invoicing retroactive to 1 November. Alternatively, invoicing of these fees may be further postponed should the situation improve significantly through 15 November.


ANL & CMA CGM will pass on this Container Excess Dwell Fee imposed by the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach along with any associated costs for containers dwelling in port facilities.


Container Excess Dwell Fee Schedule is as follows:


Merchant Haulage: US$ 100 per day after the 8th day of dwell (day 9), increasing incrementally by US$ 100 each day until the container moves out of the terminal.

IPI (All) ANL will not pass through any costs for on dock / off dock rail movements unless a delay for movement is caused by the shipper.

Carrier Haulage: ANL will not pass through any costs for carrier haulage moves unless shipper is unable to receive the container into their local facility.

Carrier Haulage (MNT): US$ 100 per day after the 8th day of dwell (day 9), increasing incrementally by US$ 100 each day until the container moves out of the terminal.

We thank you for your business and continued support.


Sincerely,

CMA CGM Group
